This is going to make me sound ancient, but when I try to imagine growing up as a kid in today’s age of social networks or try to picture having had access to the many social devices people now use (but in my teen years) — it scares the shit out of me!
I think about all of the terrible Youtube videos I could have posted, bored in my room in the suburbs, and I thank the Lord-baby-JESUS that I was one of the last generations to grow up without that type of technology. I would not be running for president… let’s just put it that way. However, one diamond-in-the-rough in a sea of terrible, glittery, Beyonce lip-sync videos is 12 year old Lillian Powers.
This girl has a sense of humour I can relate to. She is giving me Thora Birch in Ghost World, reincarnated. When Lillian asks if you can “come out and play”, she’s bringing new meaning to the term. She’s not playing with Barbies, she’s tracking down rednecks at the Home Depot just to toy with them!
If you happen to be a fan of artist Ryan Trecartin, you’ll just love Lillian! Check out some of her strongest Vine moments after the jump.
